    But the only way that happens is if we decide to cut him with two guaranteed years left on his deal. And, even as someone who wanted no part of Alex Smith, I would find that an idiotic thing to do. It's not really an "Apocalypse" scenario, it's a "suicide" scenario. BTW, if we did cut him next year, the net cap hit would be about 32 mil. He's already on the books for 20+ mil so the net hit isn't as dramatic. And there are now reports that we have a $12 mil insurance policy that would offset that amount of dead cap. So maybe a net hit of around 20 mil.
  4. The thing I've seen with Preston Smith over the years is he's kind of lucked into a lot of stats. Someone else pressures the QB and the ball gets thrown into Smith's stomach.. A forced fumble bounces to him, he bends and picks it up. The are the kinds of things that get people saying he "won us a game" and things like that. It's not a criticism, he's not doing anything wrong, he's just happened into plays that make him seem like he's doing more than he is. He's just always seemed like a guy who's much more suited to being a LDE in a 4-3. He's not good in space, but if he put 10 pounds on he'd be a good guy at the point of attack and could put up his 8 or so sacks a year, maybe slide to DT on 3rd and long. But for us he's just a guy who can't cover or pursue and has a game or two a year where he gets matched up with a T he can dominate and get 2-3 sacks (he doesn't seem to have had one this year). You can't count on him to keep getting lucky and accumulating stats. It's not really a skill. So not a bad player, but he's not worth much money for us, imo.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Nope 2020 is guaranteed for injury so he gets that too. He would have gotten it anyway, because 2020' salary would guarantee when we didn't cut him by March 5 of 2019.

    I'm still not at all sure what this "Apocalypse scenario" you're afraid of is.

    If they don't call that garbage PI, and if they call the penalty on the FG, then Minnesota likely wins. For what that's worth, which is nothing.

    If I'm Dallas, I'm not all that excited to see Seattle in the first round of the playoffs.

    How do you let a punt bounce in that situation? Lucky he got a decent bounce.

    Again, not impressed with that call.

    There's no way that was catchable.

    Yeah, I hadn't watched Minnesota this year until 4 or 5 weeks ago and this is the third time I've seen them since, and have not been impressed with his play calling or design at all.
